The final summer race of the Cougar Mountain Trail Running Series is Aug. 13 with the grueling 13-mile run at King County’s Cougar Mountain Regional Wildland Park.
The race, which begins at the Sky Country Trailhead, starts at 8:30 a.m. The Sky Country Trailhead is on 166th Way Southeast, just off Cougar Mountain Way.
The event also serves as the Pacific Northwest Regional 13-mile Trail Running Championship. Members of the USA Track and Field Association are eligible to compete in the race.
The Cougar Mountain series, in its eighth season, is sponsored by the Seattle Running Club. Of each racer’s individual event fee, $15 goes toward maintenance and improvements in King County Parks. More than $70,000 has been raised in the past seven years for King County Parks.
